Schoolhouse evokes a way of life shared by generations of rural North Americans. It is set in 1938 in S.S. #1 Jericho School just outside the fictional village of Baker's Creek, Ontario. It is a tribute to all good teachers, but especially those young women who worked on their own shaping the lives of students by inspiring loyalty, fear and a love of learning.
